Some people feel the Lib Dem signs are a little bit large ... but they did win in our area, so I suppose it paid off. For the first time in a while I didn't vote for the winning team (I used to be in a safe Green* ward) but I'm not too sullen as a) it was Lib Dem gain and b) we did manage to beat the "Respect" candidate to the bottom of the pile. Also, 39.12% turnout! Boo-yah! And some wards got around 50%! (Lib Dem 19, Lab 17, Green 8, ICWA 4)
Good day, ma'am, this is where they used to hang the prisoners -- and here's where they found the old plague pit!
In other news, the Queen is in town, opening the Oxford Castle site. All the buntings are giving me jubilee flashbacks, so I'm hiding in my office, whimpering, please don't make me wear a red-white-and-blue checked dress and serve creepy old men buns...
*Craig! He's, um, not as glamorous as this green candidate.
